Kathy also enjoys riding and helping with the cattle on the home property “Gibbarnee”, down the Brisbane River way, and keeps an eye on the workhorses Cookie-Man and Monty, plus 2 filllies. At home, the family includes 3 boys (Bruce, James and Ryan), 2 happy little dogs (Buttons and Harry), and 2 attention-seeking cats called Pippa and Ben Rogue. Kathy has also ticked off a few boxes on her 'Bucket List', with being a member of the Nanango Ladies Panthers soccer team which won the Grand Final in 2013, and competing in two triathlons as the swimmer for Team Nanango Country Vets in 2013/14 being major personal achievements. As to whether this foolhardiness continues, is anyones' guess...
Certificate II in Animal Studies; enrolled Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing
Karrie has returned from working away for most of 2016 as a Jillaroo outback in the Gulf, and has resumed her duties as our main front desk receptionist and veterinary assistant. Karrie is now enrolled in the Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. Karrie originally completed a school-based traineeship with us through the local High School, gaining a Certificate II in Animal Studies at graduation at the end of 2014 then working full-time as a a very capable veterinary assistant here the following year.
Karrie has 2 dogs named Rambo and Rascal, plus has now added a little Dachshund called Amani (expensive tastes!) and loves to ride her horse Jewels, when she can catch her. Karrie now also has a Clydesdale named Belle. Campdrafts, Rodeos and PBR's are just her thing.
Ryan works part-time on Mondays and Tuesdays. Ryan has grown up as a son of the clinic and really enjoys helping the Veterinarian (his mum) with all things veterinary. We greatly appreciate our clients saying hi to Ryan and encouraging him with his job. Ryan spent 2016 at TAFE learning numeracy, literacy and hospitality, and is now learning how to answer the phone and help out with the many jobs inherent in a Veterinary Clinic. Here he is pictured with one of the family dogs Harry (who's actually a girl dog but named after Harry Potter).
